The nests of the golden sparrows are dark, as they have no light. They fly all the way to the Kingdom of Gods to ask for help and together they find a magical solution. As this big book opens like a canvas, one enters a world of rich imagery, leaps of fantasy, shadows and moondust. This shimmering tale of friendship is sure to light up the eyes of its little readers. Also available in Hindi as Gijjigadu Aur Timtimate Jugnu
